This is the most enjoyable Star Wars so far for myself. It mixes all of the best elements from its predecessors, including great special effects, astounding sci-fi vision and scope, awesome light-saber battles, a handful of fantastic action sequences set both in space and on the ground, an epic story line with much, much darker overall thoughts and images.

It's an all-around space adventure that's hard to beat.

Well, what do you know? Anakin Skywalker actually is Darth Vader.

This is the darkest film in the double trilogy and finally completes the cycle.

It is more action-packed than any of the previous films, but is completely devoid of humor.

Despite the clunky dialog, there are some solid performances, especially by Yoda (who nearly steals the whole movie).

But let's face it, this is Darth Vader's film all the way--a suitable end to a generation of space operas.

May the force be with you . . . always.

The final Star Wars chapter reveals the making of a villain.

The story circles the political in-fighting between the forces of the Empire & the Jedi.

The young star is torn between two father figures, with the dark side promising him power over life & death and corrupting him from his innocence.

The sad part about this film is when a man attains power by embracing the dark side of the force, he loses the very thing he seeks to protect, including his soul.

This is not a happy movie, but any saga of heroic deeds that takes 28 years to complete has my vote.
